Huge thanks to @oscarsbookprize for sending us the #oscarsbookprize shortlist, we’ll really enjoy sharing them. Our librarian’s favourite is Ruby’s Worry by @TomPercivalsays but it will be fun to find out what the students think! pic.twitter.com/iPKRhT1fpC

Pamela was lucky enough to grow up in a house full of pets, have a mum and dad who were bonkers, and go to The Best Most Awesome School in the WorldTM.
Now, Pamela teaches philosophy to teenagers and spends all day pondering questions such as, ‘Is time travel possible?’ and ‘How do I know I’m not really a robot?’ The stories write themselves really… Pamela lives in Dundee with her husband, Andy, and their son, Albie, together with their two cats, Bear & Carlos.
